    No, but it was a near thing. Of course, being a mormon is much worse than being a lesbian.

    I don't. There are some stark theological differences between mainstream Christianity and Mormonism that I consider to be incompatible.

    Mormonism didn't exist during the war, started in the early 1800's....
    I doubt many Mormon leaders will join Beck for anything, except maybe his excommunication for bearing false witness...

    That would be true, all I can do is live by what I think is true.

    Richard Land, president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission was on NPR today and said he believes Mormonism to be, at best, a fourth Abrahamaic religion as opposed to being Christian theology.

    It isn't Land's decision to make. He is entitled to his opinion, as am I. IMO, if you follow the teachings of Christ, you are proclaiming by your actions to be a christian. If you are not following the teachings of Christ, you can proclaim all you want, you are only a hypocrite.
    I was raised by baptists in east texas, and I can assure you that a lot of the baptists I lived among were not christians. Many were racists, for starters. Jews and Catholics weren't liked very well, either.
    The SBC waited til 1995 to apologize for their long standing advocacy of slavery.
    That makes for a bit of irony, that the Southern Baptists would criticize mormons for denying the priesthood to blacks, which was changed in 1978, while they continued to believe that slavery was ok in the eyes of god for another 17 years..
